Here at Magnetic Magazine we're all about music that can't be easily lumped into any single category, and BOT's latest club heater certainly fits the bill. "You Can Rise" from Insomniac Records' ADE 2016 compilation delivers just enough classic house appeal to earn the respect of genre purists while managing to avoid the pretense that often accompanies it.
Following a less-is-more approach, "You Can Rise" is built upon a stripped-down ghetto tech bass line infused with a delightfully innocent wonkiness. The vocal refrain for which the track is titled rings out every few measures in a manner sure to sway every body on a given dance floor in reverent motion.
BOT is no stranger to proper house and techno, having released music through labels like Dirtybird Records, Nightbass and This Ain't Bristol. Boasting collaborations with the likes of Low Steppa, Sage Armstrong, Sacha Robotti and Destructo, he's demonstrated a favorable career trajectory indeed.
After listening to BOT's "You Can Rise" in the YouTube player above, look out for the rest of the songs from Insomniac Records' ADE 2016 collaboration as it comes out tomorrow, October 14th.
